This method would fire for each key entered while in a text or numeric field. The method would have the key pressed as a parameter, and parameters for shift,control and alt keys. The method would return the key pressed by default.
This would allow the developer to mask/modify/format during data entry instead of during the document save method.
This would assist during data entry where certain fields may be in a different case or special format. It would help in situcations where users repeatedly have to engage/disengage capslock when switching between forms and applications.

Eerie. I just made this case in a comment on another idea.

I voted for it. Aditionally I want to mention that nevertheless it has its own quirks.
Java Script has that. And implemented quite differently on IE and Mozilla.
From own experience I learnt that the problem with single-character checking is often context.
The user has a Country. The first letter should be uppercase, the following letters lower case.
User types: bel
User notes that the first letter is lowercase.
He wants to fix that and navigates with the left cursor key. By itself the key listener does not know the context, if this is the first position in the field, the second or whatever.
